WWW Wednesdays is a weekly meme that is hosted by Taking on a World of Words. The “rules” are simple – answer the 3 questions below:
1. What are you currently reading?
I’m reading a non-fiction, Shooting History, by Jon Snow – an autobiographical account of modern history and journalism Snow was involved in. I’ve also been sent another book to read for Rosie’s Book Review Team, The Devil In The Countryside, a historical thriller by Cory Barclay. I’m also reading another free book to review – Being Simon Haines, by Tom Vaughan MacAulay.
It’s also exam-season, so as a form of revision, I’m aiming to re-read texts that will be covered in my exams. Here’s how I’ve got on so far:
- Alan Sillitoe,
The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Runner
- Irvine Welsh, Trainspotting (almost finished!)
- Thomas Hardy, Tess of the D’Urbervilles
- Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre (almost finished!)
- Jane Austen, Lady Susan
- Arthur Conan Doyle,
selected Sherlock Holmes stories
- D.H. Lawrence,
selected short stories
2. What did you recently finish reading?
I read so much over the Easter break! I read The Seagull, a play by Anton Chekhov, as well some more Stephen King novels of course – The Shining and The Tommyknockers. I also finished the thriller Perfect People by Peter James, as well as The Mayor of Casterbridge by Thomas Hardy. I also received a new book, Commune: Book One, to read and review for Joshua Gayou, a new author.
3. What do you think you’ll read next?
As I really enjoyed Perfect People, I want to explore the works of Peter James, and the thriller genre as whole, further. It would also be nice to read some more classic literature as well.
